Fine machine. Rides like a sewing machine, steams like a kettle on a candle, has shedloads of power and padded seats.

What's not to love? (And this from a diehard Black 5 man) Cool

As part of the West Somerset Railway’s Spring Steam Gala Rebuilt Bulleid "Light Pacific” locomotive 34053 "Sir Keith Park” will take on the identity of long-scrapped class mate 34098 "Templecombe” at a naming ceremony to be held at Bishops Lydeard station on March 9th between 11.30 and midday. It will then run in this guise during the second part of the WSR’s Spring Steam Gala which will be taking place on March 5th and 6th and March 10th to 13th.

Very unfortunate. My thoughts are with the railway staff involved.
